AOTrauma North America

AO North America (AONA®) is an independent, non-profit, regional affiliate of the AO Foundation. It is dedicated to the advancement of patient care in orthopedic, hand, craniomaxillofacial, spine, and veterinary surgery by building and expanding the AO heritage in North America.

In 2008, the Board of Directors of the AO Foundation created AOTrauma. They recognized the need for clinical divisions to have their own identity, based on the unique market dynamics of their respective areas of expertise.

Since then, AOTrauma has grown into a global community of best-in-class trauma and orthopedic surgeons and researchers. It continues to focus on its strengths: education, fellowship, research, and community development.
